Operation UNITAS 2012

Boca Chica Naval Base has been preparing for Operation Unitas, an annual maritime training exercise to improve responses in drug interdiction, piracy, human smuggling, humanitarian response and possible battles in the Atlantic and Carribean. A multi-national naval fleet was ported in Key West during the first day of UNITAS 2012, a two-week joint maritime training exercise bringing together ships and crews from Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, United Kingdom and the U.S.
They will depart Tuesday for a planned exercise off Playa Giron, just West of the Guantanamo Naval base in Cuba.

ATnT and Their Crappy Network

Here we go again! The AT&T serving my DSL is acting all kinds of screwy again, not 2 weeks after they found a core router in trouble deep in their internal network. No e.t.r. but Comcast can't come fast enough!

I'll update this post when the Mixer Board and Wild feeds are normal again. I'm just going to shut down the feed computer since it does no good to have it keep hammering the Icecast server to no avail.


GoDaddy Name Server Outage

GoDaddy is having trouble with their domain name servers (DNS) this afternoon. Since colostreaming.com is registered with them that would explain why I can't hit the scanner Icecast server.

Keep hitting it every so often, when it comes back it will start to work again. Nothing anybody can do about this but GoDaddy. Since their own sales web site is affected by this I'm quite confident they are putting maximum effort into solving it.

In the meantime, if you want to bypass DNS just point your stream player to
in place of colostreaming.com

For example, my Key West feed is at
